US to keep 200 troops in Syria as ‘peacekeeping group’

U.S. Army/Reuters
The Trump administration will keep 200 US troops in Syria to act as a small peacekeeping group. This was announced by the White House yesterday that the decision was taken after Trump spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the phone.

After the call between the two leaders, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that  a small peacekeeping group of about 200 will remain in Syria for a period of time.

In December last year, Trump abruptly declared victory against the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria and announced that more than 2,000 US troops in Syria would be withdrawn immediately. The administration has since changed its timeline and said that it will seek a withdrawal of most troops by the end of April.
